Dear SOTWers, hope you can lend me your wisdom. I bought this vintage Conn Eagle alto piece in a bulk deal. I think it's been modified rather badly. please look at the photo-maybe you can tell what's been done to it and whether it can be improved at all. It sounds muffled. I think it's been shortened, too(possible tip chip?) the normal Conn Eagle length is 3,24 inches (8,25 cm) and mine is only 3,14 (8 cm). The left rail is uneven and from the inside feels bumpy, too. Anything that I can do myself at all (except throwing it away). I realise "take it to the professional" is an obvious choice, so apart from this advice is needed, thank you.
